Post-Christendom Mission


Alan Hirsch
The church as we know it is changing. We live in a post-modern, post-Christian and post-American world, where the church is no longer placed at the center of society. Our influence is waning and our basis for ecclesiology will drive the way we interact in this new reality. It begs the question, what should the church look like and how does the mission of the church adapt within this context?

Hirsch asserts that "the church can be reborn through incarnational mission, messianic spirituality and apostolic structure."  Click to check out video
